raft repair

Hello, , last year I bought an older NRS raft to get started with and it has been great but this summer I notice one of the tubes is losing air. I have a repair kit but am wondering what is the best way pinpoint location of a leak? Or how I might test to see if a valve is leaking? It's a slow leak (i.e. must add air once in a full afternoon of rafting).
Thanks in advance!

Blow up the tube then spray it with soapy water just like you'd do for a bike tube, watch for the bubbles coming out of the leak. Fill the valves with plain water and watch for bubbles there too.
